A Trainer walking in the Wild Area.

The Wild Area (Japanese: ワイルドエリア Wild Area) is an extensive area in the Galar region. It adjoins several towns in the region.

The Pokémon found in the Wild Area vary depending on the weather, which can vary wildly between the different subareas. Pokémon with higher levels also wander outside of the normal tall grass in many places. The areas north of the Motostoke River are home to Pokémon with higher levels overall.

Unlike the rest of the game (which uses a fixed perspective), in the Wild Area the player can control the camera using the left control stick.



An overview of the entire Wild Area

The Wild Area is composed of many subareas. The player first enters the Wild Area from the south, but the locations below are listed from north to south in accordance with the map. The Town Map's representation of the Wild Area is only a rough layout and may diverge from in-game borders.

South Wild Area
  • Watchtower Ruins lies in the northwestern corner.
  • East Lake Axewell is the large area in the north in front of the gate to Motostoke and includes most of the eastern half of Lake Axewell.
  • Axew's Eye is the island that lies in the middle of Lake Axewell.
  • North Lake Miloch lies in the northeastern corner and includes a part of the northern end of Lake Miloch.
  • West Lake Axewell is the western half of Lake Axewell (in the west). Despite the depiction on the Town Map, it also extends north of the footbridge to Motostoke's wall.
  • Dappled Grove lies in the southwestern corner.
  • Rolling Fields is the large central area in the south.
  • Meetup Spot is the southernmost point.
  • South Lake Miloch encompasses the majority of Lake Miloch (in the east).
  • Giant's Seat lies along the south and east borders of the Wild Area.
North Wild Area


The Wild Area has a number of features that appear in many different areas:

  • The Wild Area is populated with 99 Pokémon Dens, where the player can participate in Max Raid Battles.
  • There are a large number of hidden items throughout the Wild Area. These items respawn daily, and each specific spot may yield different items on different days.
  • Watt Traders allow the player to trade Watts for items, participate in the Rotom Rally, change the color of their outfit, and upgrade their Rotom Bike.
  • Fishers and Hikers appear in various places throughout the Wild Area to sell the player an unspecified item for Watts.

The Wild Area in the anime

The Wild Area appeared in SS005, where Ash and Go explored it. They witnessed a Snorlax Gigantamaxing, but it blocked a railroad line in the process, threatening to cause an accident. However, Ash and Go were able to make Snorlax move off the tracks, saving the train. Afterwards, in the same area, Go caught the Scorbunny that had followed him from Wyndon.
